I read somewhere today that if you dread Mondays, then you spend 1/7 of your life wasted on dreading one day a week. I am guilty for the occasional Monday dread, but I definitely don’t want to waste 1/7 of my life on it! So, I woke up bright and early this morning to hit the gym for a sweaty cardio workout.
I have decided to plan out my weekly gym sessions as follows:
Monday, Wednesday & Friday: cardio workout that I will mix up between the treadmill, running outside, elliptical and stairmaster
Thursday: 24 S.E.T. (I am trying the class for the first time this week, so I will see how it goes)
Saturday: Light Cardio with weight training/circuits or Rest Day
Sunday: Rest Day
*My rest days typically consist of a couple long dog walks as well as being out and about, so I guess it could be considered active rest?!
It felt great to start the week off with a morning workout and I am feeling good about the early morning wake up! It is so true (at least for me) that early morning gym workouts are the best way to be consistent with a gym routine.
My breakfast was a delicious bowl of oatmeal with peanut butter and some of these guys:
4 lbs of strawberries for $7.99?! Don’t mind if I do! Obviously, Michael and I will be feasting on these through the week so this probably won’t be the first time you see them! :) Work today was super busy and I felt like I looked at the clock at 10am, then again at 4:45 when it was almost time to go home. I love those days! But, only when I am productive as well, which I was. :)
I made a pretty tasty dinner tonight, and if you like bruschetta, then I suggest checking back in tomorrow!!
